A Beautiful Fighter Who Won’t Back Down.
Pairing self-confidence, social good, a fighting spirit and entrepreneurship, Delilah supports women in developing and sustaining their inner confidence. Being an example herself, she reminds women to make time to better themselves for a better world while providing her healthy aging services for over the past decade. Delilah understands the fight. She worked hard to build her business, often working two or three jobs in the process of raising a son. Her journey had her experience firsthand what the “fight” of life is. Reflecting on her journey, she began thinking about others who are out there fighting, too. “My journey wasn’t easy, but no one’s is. We must “fight” to get where we want to be. If you want to achieve your dreams, you must overcome challenges. Sometimes they are challenges that are outside our control, sometimes they’re challenges that we bring upon ourselves by mistakes and the journey of life,” says Delilah.
Delilah started beauty school while a teenager and started working in salons as soon as she was licensed. Over the years she discovered her niche and moved into product research and branding, while servicing her clients. Delilah expresses an endless creativity for thinking outside the box, branding, and the ability to identify formulas that produce the best products for her customers. She now collaborates with cosmetic companies who consult her for branding ideas and conjuring up sway product names. Beautiful Fighter® is where she now focuses most of her time. This is a company you need to know about. Beautiful Fighter® is a line of skin care, cosmetics and much more. Believing everyone has the power to fight for what they believe in, Delilah has packaged her vision into an impactful, empowering product line that delivers a difference. “I didn’t create Fighter to be just another skin care or cosmetic company, it is created with the intention of delivering products with IMPACT, one that will touch people’s lives, a message that empowers and yes of course keeps us all looking and feeling our best.” Delilah says.
Delilah works in conjunction with Northwestern Medicine, where she administers Oncology Facials, extending her Beautiful Fighter® message to those facing cancer. Due to the versatile nature of the product line, Beautiful Fighter® products are utilized at the cancer resource center and are a proven great match for patients undergoing cancer treatments. Her treatments and products have enhanced the quality of life of many patients. In the past year, boxing has become a big part of Delilah’s life, she has seen her personal life and business grow alongside her love for boxing. She started boxing just a little over a year ago and has blossomed into a Beautiful Fighter® herself. She also competed as a finalist in her first boxing match at the Chicago Golden Gloves. As she thinks of women who must fight throughout their lives for various reasons, she shares that it made her realize that the fight is not just in the ring, but it is even more so outside the ropes.
“The fight is every day, each day we ALL wake up and face something. I see it when I work with my clients at the cancer center. Or women and children of domestic violence. When it comes to boxing or sports in general, I began to think of athletes that must fight through their own personal challenges to get to where they are today, that is why I had to take Beautiful Fighter and go straight to the USA Boxing Olympic Organization.” Delilah says.
Recently, Delilah met with the USA Olympic Boxing Organization in Colorado Springs. She now is in partnership with the Organization and is an Official Sponsor for the USA Boxing Team, providing top athletes with Beautiful Fighter products.
In partnership with the YWCA, Beautiful Fighter® products are available through the nonprofits online store with a portion of all sales going back to support their anti-domestic violence program. A similar program is in place
with Chicago’s largest nonprofit anti-domestic organization, WINGS. She is also a longtime supporter of Project HELP of DuPage, whose mission is to empower parents, nurture families and strengthen communities. Delilah desires women, children and teens to experience the strength to face their fight beautifully and is on a relentless mission to deliver her message.
When asked about advice for other entrepreneurs, Delilah says, “Don’t compete with one another, compete with yourself, don’t focus on what others think, people are going to think you’re crazy anyway. Fight for what you know is calling you and believe in. Keep fighting and don’t back down. Don’t try to be perfect, always be yourself.” Delilah also shares “Determine what matters to you most, ask yourself, what does success mean to you? If your focus is only money, you’ll miss the mission of your work and the magic that happens along the way. Feeling wealthy is not about money, it’s about serving others, improving the lives around you, money will come. God feeds all the birds so try not to worry too much.”
Also, on Delilah’s agenda is another mission trip overseas. “I do a lot for our local communities here first, but / also love to help women and children in need from other parts of the world.” she says. This time, she wants to go
back sharing boxing and Beautiful Fighter with women, young adults and children. “I want to bring a bin of boxing gloves and red lipstick for all the women and mini boxing gloves for all the children. Being able to share an entire week of boxing with a village that maybe has never had the opportunity to put on a pair of gloves and experience boxing would be like a dream come true.”
In asking Delilah why she picked boxing as her outlet, she had this to share: “Boxing has changed my body, the way I experience being fit inside and out. It pushes me physically, mentally and emotionally. There is always room to grow and learn. Find an activity that makes you tick, and challenges you. If we’re not pushing outside our comfort zones we will get too comfortable where we’re at, don’t settle, keep pushing for your best.” Delilah’s making her goals and dreams come true, and she’s learned to fight for it. “With faith all things are possible, but even with faith you still must face the day and fight for what you believe in. Faith without work is nothing. Believe in yourself, and keep fighting”
